“This is a very student-friendly text. The author has succeeded in writing a basic statistics text that is inviting rather than off-putting.”
“Accessible and approachable, this book makes a conscious effort to appeal to contemporary social science students who may not have a strong affinity for mathematics.”
“I truly value the ease with which the author conveys oftentimes confusing and scary information to students.”
“Those looking for a full integration of the theory of statistics and its application (through SPSS) will find no better book that this one.”
“The text proceeds in a logical order, building upon what was covered earlier. This is one of its strong suits: it presents the topics in a logical, practical order. It also covers the necessary statistics.”
far too simplistic and too much emphasis on SPSS
Still under review
Ordered for Library. Solid book, but not the exact fit that I was looking for.
Not exactly what I needed. It is a good book
This book explains in laymen manner about the application of descriptive statistics and inferential statistics in social science research. Excellent for those who want an instant knowledge about statistics.
Very good book, ideally pitched for undergraduates to get to grips with. Enough detail to inform the reader but not too much to put off.
I would recommend adding more on different group and paired comparisons though. The procedure for different ANOVAs and MANOVAs is very different and one that many students struggle with. Maybe in the second edition?
It is easy to understand.
It was determined this book did not meet the needs of the course.
This title offers a clear presentation of statistical techniques without hand-calculation, which is more in line with an "authentic tasks" orientation to the material. SPSS instruction is tied nicely into the text and is exceptionally clear and concise. I am loving using this book. It took so much of the stress out of teaching statistics to Sociology majors who tend to be math-phobic.
This decision was taken with the biostats prefessor. We need a book that is more oriented toward medical students, using medical issues and problems.
Not using at this time, but will consider use with advanced students in future semesters.
still considering it for next year, but decided to use Agresti & Finlay's Statistical Methods for the Social Scineces instead, as it is more comprehensive.
like Salkind better
This is a well-written textbook. It explains the statistics in a very easy to understand. However there are lots of examples that international students might not understand.
Highly recommended. Layout not busy and support commentary with application
